“historic”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

a truly historic dive of a tavern. Decent food, good value, good selection of beer. Shoot pool, drink a lot of beer. Not a couples bar/ tavern. But an experience.

“Great local Tavern with good food!”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

During our week stay in Friday Harbor we found ourselves going back here each night. The bartenders were friendly and awesome! We had great fun meeting and playing pool with some of the locals and vistors, ordered hamburgers and they were very good... Just a fun atmosphere with good food.

“Not what the bar sign says!”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

The sign above the bar says Friendliest Place in Town.. Not last Saturday night. The bar tender certainly wasn't friendly. My husband asked him if he had a particular beer. The answer.. "No". He wasn't given an alternative and had to get up and look for himself what they had available.

Maybe it was that the bartender had been reprimanded in front of customers for not having all the chairs down on the floor, instead of on the tables. Or maybe he just figured we were tourists and didn't care. Whatever it was, maybe he should look at the sign above the bar occasionally.

As for the food it wasn't edible so we left without finishing.
